Hickory Elite Presents The Launch powered by Shoot 360.

Indianapolis,IN, USA, 2019-Sep-21 — /EPR Network/ — Hickory Elite will present The Launch powered by Shoot 360, taking place at Shoot 360 Indianapolis,8090 Georgetown Road, Indianapolis, IN 46268 on October 27,2019, and featuring the top 25 incoming freshmen boys basketball athletes.

Hickory Elite is proud to bring The Launch powered by Shoot 360 to the state of Indiana for the first time. The Launch powered by Shoot 360 will bring together the top 25 incoming freshmen for an unrivaled training and game play experience. The athletes will be put through an elite collegiate level workout and ending in a highly competitive game allowing the athletes to be tested and prepare for the upcoming IHSAA season, with official practices starting November 11th.

The 25 freshmen were chosen by coaches and players from the summer shoe circuits that have watched and followed these kids for most of their careers. “Its not an exact science to putting together a top 25 list and I’m sure there are some kids that probably deserve to be invited that won’t be. We tried to take an approach of players know players and got some of the higher level players together and had them create a list of who they felt were the top 25 kids they’ve faced over the last two years and we had summer AAU coaches do the same. We then cross referenced the lists and were able to form a pretty accurate top 25,” Hickory Elite President and Founder, Jake Hinson stated. “This 2023 class for the state of Indiana is one of the most loaded freshman classes we have seen in sometime. There is a ton of potential for success not only for the top 25 but the top 40 kids in this class. It will all come down to who puts in the work and who doesn’t.”

Hickory Elite is a non for profit start up focusing on improving the basketball community by offering free clinics to both athletes and coaches, educating on the court knowledge and off the court principles that will one day help lead to more scholarships for the student athletes in the state of Indiana.
